PhD student (preferable from vet college, needs to have TOEFL (IELTS) and GREs。The current stipend for a beginning PhD student is $22500 before tax deductions (this might differ by couple of hundreds for non-veterinarian student but I am not sure of differences between veterinarian and non-veterinarian graduate stipends). After passing candidacy exam additional $2500 per year is added to stipend. We also get free health insurance worth $2500 per year. The tuition fee is covered but we have to pay minimal amount each semester which is usually around $250-$300. You can get studio bed room university housing close to our lab for 615$ which includes all fees (electricity, water, internet etc).
